Gas Pipeline Diversion

The present excavations and civil engineering works west of and adjacent to Milton Farm, Monymusk Road, are operations to divert a 10″ gas pipeline that has become exposed on the bed of the River Don. The  existing pipe probably became exposed as a result of the flooding caused by Storm Frank in January 2016.

The replacement section will be deeper and connect to the existing pipeline either side of the River Don.  The work is being carried out by Murphy Engineering and completion date is estimated to be either December 2017 or January 2018 depending on weather conditions.
